A dark veil of respite covers your face;
Tears seep through your hands of evil,
Shadows enclose across your celestial eyes,
The nemesis of blinding light,
Cast by perplex outcasts of witchcraft.
A condition of day fading into night,
Devastation of a dubious kind,
Deception burns the decay,
From a tapestry telling a story of woe
A sacramental disgrace, a talisman of disorder,
Held high by a hero of injustice,
A dark order of annihilation, dwarfed by fear,
And knights of the darkness suffer for us,
To protect us from the inevitable doom of night,
And thoughts of sin creep through my mind,
Screams of horror break the silence of the vile excuse,
That clouds the minds of all deemed wise and powerful,
Until they are little more then the pitiful harlequin of cowardice
Hide in the shadows until you are protected by the light,
With sunrise brings more false hope,
And is believed and beloved by all through equivocation,
And falsehood spoken by an Angel,
Who brandishes a halo long gone rusty,
And wields a tyrannical commanding voice.
Whilst a purge of all sinister blame,
That falls upon the shoulder of the innocent,
And suffer at the hands of unjust predominance
A divine excuse for a devil to live,
Unchecked by all who wish for abomination,
Yet no excuse for a separatist deformity,
A defame trinity of blaspheme, abortion, and filth.
I am the priest of your maiming, your sad reason,
A defiance of disgraceful dishonour and deception,
No more reason for self-control or reasons untold,
Thy antagonist of the warriors of Eden,
And a mannequin of all that I embrace.

    General CommentIt was mentioned in last month's 'Metal Hammer' magazine. Corey said their album has a long way to go, but they are changing the theme of their music a lot. The few demo's of their music can be found on the Roadrunner website, their website, and other Metal websites found on google. These were song's that they made in their spare time away from other bands, and are likly to be changed drasticly before the final album is made. They are in the very early stages.

    General CommentOK, Haunted Angel. There site is not running, it is being remade. I read interviews from Mick Thomson and he said they wont start writing until november this year. Metal Hammer probably faked the review. Show me one official Slipknot website and I will believe you.

    General CommentNotice how all these are by Haunted Angel? Seems a bit odd to me. And Slipknot don't write bs like this. I have their s't, iowa, and vol3. Nothing like this bs in any of those 3. The closest thing would be Heretic Anthem and it's not even about religion so fuck off.
